FRIENDLY RESERVATIONS STAFF & ISLAND STAFF: Our #1 goal is to make your
stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible and our reservations staff is happy to answer any
questions prior to your trip in addition to arranging your charter flights, golf cart and mainland
tours. For your snorkeling and diving, Carlos with Suya Tours is always nearby to assist you.
Our office staff is off-site, but will greet you at your condo when you arrive. Upon check-in, you
will be presented with instructions, keys, all the linens you will need and given tips on how to make
the most out of your vacation. The staff is always a phone call away. We also hand-pick a
personal cab driver who will be on call for you during your stay. We have complimentary bikes
with baskets for you to retrieve groceries/souverniers from town. Golf cart rental can also be
arranged. An Internet café is 1.5 miles away.
DIVINE DIVING: Belize is one of the top 10 diving destinations globally. Utilize one of the
local, fully-equipped dive shops and take advantage of the second longest living Barrier Reef in
the world. One popular dive site, Hol Chan Marine Reserve, is a quick 10 minute boat ride
away. Explore endless canyons and walls. Visit Belize’s famous Blue Hole. Explore black coral
and giant sponges. There’s a good chance you could swim with dolphins, glide with schools of
Eagle rays and socialize with manta rays.
SUPERIOR SNORKELING: The best snorkeling in Belize is just a short, 1/3 mile trip out to
sea. Swim with 6 foot sharks and manta rays. You can book directly with the on-site tour
operator, Suya Tours by Carlos or we can help arrange a charter who will pick you up on our
300 foot dock.
FINE FISHING: A fisherman’s dream with tarpon, snook, blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish,
wahoo, dorado, kingfish and yellowtail just to name a few. Grouper and snapper are found in
abundance with the help of a local guide. Catch bonefish off the resort’s 300 foot dock.
BEST BEACH: Due to the Barrier Reef and sea grass, most of the beaches in Belize are not
"true" swimming beaches mainly due to large break walls. However, we are the exception and not
the norm. Our break wall is a mere 3 inches tall which allows easy access to the water. We
recommend diving booties because of the sea grass. You and the kids can catch some wonderful
snorkeling just a few feet from your condo's front door! Many enjoy fishing right off our 300 foot
dock because the water is so clear you can actually watch the fish as they bite your line.
LIVELY LOCALS: One of the best features of Ambergris Caye are the locals. They are fun-
loving, laid-back and refreshingly friendly. It is truly an honor to have such gracious people so
proudly share their piece of paradise with us. It is said they never wear shoes, but they always
wear a smile. People like this should be treasured.
AWESOME ADVENTURES: Let our reservation staff arrange your mainland tours
for you! The jungles of Belize have an abundance of wildlife from exotic birds and howler
monkeys to jaguars and crocodiles. Visit the Maya ruins or go deep into the jungle to enter caves
filled with ancient Maya relics. Explore the rain forests. Take boat rides down the winding
rivers. Enter mysterious caves or travel to exotic waterfalls. The tour companies are organized,
efficient and fun. Mainland tours are a day event where you will leave in the morning and return
mid to late afternoon just in time to take a sunset nap in a hammock, or quiet stroll along the
beach, before you make dinner plans.
DELECTABLE DINING: On Ambergris Caye it is never hard to match your meal to your
mood. Dine in condo or go out and enjoy one of the wonderful restaurants on the island. There is
a lot of fun to be had in San Pedro. Many restaurants have live entertainment.
ROYALLY ROMANTIC: Celebrate your wedding, anniversary, engagement, or simply your
union together. Many couples cannot help but feel celestial wonder in renewing the beauty of their
relationship in such a magically, tropical paradise.
